The 2013 LABC Mayoral Transportation, Housing & Jobs Summit
Friday, October 18th
7:30 am to 2:00 pm
UCLA’s Korn Convocation Hall
The LABC Annual Mayoral Summit has come to be regarded as the most effective and productive forum that has helped spur transit-oriented development and sustainable workforce housing for Los Angeles for more than a decade. Our panels this year will focus on the following key topics:
- identifying financial tools and regulatory reform for successful urban development
- building healthy and sustainable communities along transit corridors
- and investing in industries driving jobs for the future
The Summit, now in its 12th year, is a gathering of top business leaders and government decision-makers at the UCLA Anderson School of Business. Industry and Government leaders will address topics of pressing concern to Southern California’s economy, including local job creation, transit oriented development, and global competitiveness. Previous participants have included U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, L.A. Mayor Hahn, and executives from Fortune 500 companies.
This year’s Summit will feature the release of a new UCLA report examining the serious economic threat posed by the region’s shortage of workforce housing, and proposing novel solutions that incorporate forward-thinking public policy changes and a new approach to integrating the region’s growing transit system.
Joining us at this years summit is the former US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Henry Cisneros, LA City Attorney Michael Feuer, LA City Council Member Mike Bonin, CEO of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Tom Priselac, West Region Executive Director of JPMorgan Chase Global Philanthropy Kari Dohn Decker, Founder of Sungevity Danny Kennedy, President of Meta Housing Corporation John Huskey, Dean and John E.
